yes, sort of.

for older jack < 0.118.0 the new qjackctl realtime setting may now be
nothing less than misleading.

if you really need to keep with this old jackd, you're then strongly
advised to set the server path to "jackd -R", explicitly. do not ever turn
off the realtime checkbox. it will break jackd command line startup as "-r"
being an invalid option.
